Asparagus Tart Recipe
1 package puff pastry sheets (normally 2 sheets per box – allow to thaw at room temperature)
1 1/2 lbs asparagus
1/2 cup sour cream
2 tsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp horseradish
Sea salt and cracked pepper to taste
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Once your pastry sheets are thawed, take a sharp knife and cut along the folded edges of the sheets (so that you have three separate pieces). Next, cut them in half. You should now have six pieces total.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place your pastry sheets on top. Cut a 45 degree angle slit into the corners of each pastry sheet to make it easier to fold your boats.
Now, fold up the edges of each corner and attach them so that you have a little boat. To make them stick, dab a bit of water on each corner edge, which will help to seal them together.
Set your pan in the oven and bake until fluffy and golden brown, about 10 minutes. Once ready, remove your pastry from the oven and gently press the middle portions of the tarts down with the back of a fork. Be careful to keep the outer edges intact.
In a bowl large enough to fit your asparagus, place a few inches of hot water. Snap off the bottom of your asparagus (and maybe a little more), so that you have about 3-4″ on each stalk. Place your asparagus into the water for about two minutes to get them prepped for cooking.
After two minutes, remove them from the water and allow them to dry just a bit (in a colander or on paper towels).
In a large pan over medium heat, add 1 teaspoon of olive oil and heat until it looks shimmery. Add your asparagus, salt and pepper (to taste) and cook until the sides of your asparagus are slightly seared.
In a small bowl, add your sour cream, horseradish, and Dijon mustard. Mix until well blended. Now, add a teaspoon of the sour cream mixture to each tart shell and spread evenly. Add 4-5 pieces of asparagus on top and serve!
